At the ribbon-cutting and grand re-opening of the Jackson location last week, Dickey’s awarded two lucky guests free barbecue for a year.

“Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is honored to welcome the Teague family as a part of our own,” said Laura Rea Dickey, CEO of Dickey’s Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. “Dickey’s Barbecue Pit is the nation’s largest barbecue chain, but to our core we are still a family-run business serving communities slow-smoked barbecue.”
With a passion for slow-smoked barbecue, Teague partners with her husband, David, and her son, Austin Woodyard, to bring Dickey’s barbecue to their hometown of Jackson. The Teague family are veterans in the restaurant industry as they also own three Jamba Juice locations int the area.
Born and raised in Jackson, the Teagues are highly involved in their community, not only through their other local businesses but also as members of the Chamber of Commerce. “Our community is looking forward to us bringing Dickey’s pit-smoked barbecue back to our town,” said Abra Teague. “We are excited to bring the brand we fell in love with to Jackson and serve our community Texas-style barbecue.”
